Music I Liked And Didn't - 8/29/07
WOODEN SHJIPS: SOL '07 (Pts 1 and 2) 7" Single (Sick Thirst) - In advance of their highly anticipated debut full length on Holy Mountain (street date 9/11/07), San Francisco’s Wooden Shjips tease us with this tasty 7” single. Released in conjunction with Holy Mountain on the band’s own Sick Thirst imprint, this 7” is limited to 500 copies and the proceeds from it will go to benefit the fine grassroots organization Food Not Bombs. This extended track “SOL ‘07” stretches over both sides of the 7” and is intended as a sonic commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the infamous “Summer of Love”. It’s a respectable psych jam with droning organs, echoplexed vocals, and lysergic electric guitar leads being propelled by driving Krautrock rhythms. Now I’m fully primed for the debut full length - bring it on!
By the way, S. F. Bay Area locals will have the opportunity to catch the Wooden Shjips live a couple of times in the next few weeks:
On Saturday, September 15 they’ll be appearing with Seiichi Yamamoto (ex-Boredoms) and Suishou no Fune at the Bottom Of The Hill in San Francisco.
On Sunday, September 16 they’ll be appearing with Suishou no Fune at Delta of Venus in Davis, California.
